The National Center for Veterans Studies engages in research focused on the health and success of active military personnel and veterans, and in the translation of scientific findings into practical and actionable recommendations and strategies for improving the lives of military personnel and veterans. To meet this latter objective, NCVS staff regularly provide education and training to health care professionals, the general public, and policy makers.
The Suicide and Trauma Reduction Initiative for VEterans (STRIVE) project is a three-year treatment and training effort coordinated by the University of Utah’s National Center for Veterans Studies in partnership with the American Association of Suicidology and CBS Community Partnerships. STRIVE is made possible by a generous gift to the National Center for Veterans Studies from the Boeing Company.
The NCVS offers psychological (non-medication)treatment to military personnel, veterans, first-responders, and family members at no-cost for the following conditions and problems: PTSD, suicidal thoughts, insomnia and nightmares, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. All military personnel and veterans are eligible for treatment regardless of military discharge status, era of service, or Branch/Component of service.
